very good night when they take the stage at the super bowl. how would you describe your music? >> it's real good music. >> reporter: later on sunday morning, will "i am" fergie and the rest of the peas talk about their song, celebrity and how it all got started. >> osgood: football is only a game but pro football as the packers and steelers play it is far from child's play. it's a big business and a national obsession which means you can't start too soon learning all about it. at least that's what grandpa bill geist thinks. >> reporter: its super bowl time and my grandson george, one-and-a-half, knows nothing about the game. i'll set out to teach him about football and how to be a man later on sunday morning. >> osgood: barry petersen takes in the art, that's right, the art on the dallas stadium walls.
where tonight's super bowl game will be play. david pogue swims with the shark. we look back on president ronald reagan who was born on this day in 1911. this would have been his 100th birthday. those reports and more but first the headlines for sunday morning the 6th of february, 2011. here's the latest from egypt on day 13 of the uprising there. today the government met to discuss reforms with several opposition groups including the banned muslim brotherhood. there are signs of normal life returning despite the protests. traffic is again moving in cairo. some banks have reopened. it now appears the united states and other major nations are backing the egyptian government's plan to gradually ease president mubarak out of office. our elizabeth palmer will look back on this tumultuous week in egypt in just a few minutes. the espionage trial of three american hikers held by iran begins today in tehran. one of those hikers was released last september. her financee shane bauer and
josh fattal remain in custody. bank of america has agreed to to settle a lawsuit on overdraft charges. they helped bring about federal regulations on overdraft fees. final preparations are underway for tonight's super bowl. that includes the task of clearing snow off the cow boy stadium roof. the game features two of the nfl's most storied franchises, the steelers are going for their 7th title. the packers for their fourth. kick-off is at 6:30 p.m. eastern. >> now for today's forecast. a huge mass of frigid arctic air is covering the middle of the country. it will be mild and mostly dry on the coast. the cold will move eastward in the days ahead bringing with it the possibility of still more snow in the snowy northeast. ahead, whatever happened to privacy? >> so, george, for a super bowl party there are some

big tobacco knew it, and they preyed on me. i'm here to tell you that big tobacco hasn't changed. they continue to profit... by selling kids the same lies... to get them to use... the same deadly products. don't be big tobacco's next victim. >> osgood: as we reported earlier the crisis in egypt has entered its 13th day, and president mubarak's opponents are keeping the pressure on. elizabeth palmer has been in cairo almost from the first. she has filed this sunday journal.
>> reporter: 50 years from now, they'll be telling their grandchildren, "i was there when the people of egypt lost their fear and discovered strength in numbers." >> egypt was really born this week. it's the new egypt. >> reporter: hosni mubarak's regime has tried every tactic in the police state to put this uprising down, but the protestors in the square neither moved nor changed their core demands. as the protestors dug in though, so did the president. on monday night, he spoke to the country telling them he wasn't going anywhere until elections next fall. on tuesday with egyptian soldiers round the square, and armed citizens guarding their neighborhoods, the so-called million man marched mobilized women and children too in a peaceful, even joyful show of support. and then the government turned the internet back on.
and images of astonishing state brutality spread like wild fire. a police van mowing down marchers. a man apparently shot in cold blood. wednesday things turned even uglier. pro mubarak supporters charged the protestors on horseback and even a camel. at times the volley of stones behind the two sides filled the dead. that night heavy shooting broke out around the square. at least 10 people died. when morning came, medical staff at a makeshift clinic were still patching up the injured, as one doctor kept the world informed on facebook. are you blogging live? >> i am the physician here. in my tree time.... >> reporter: by friday, the
army was openly protecting the protestors at they mobilized for yet another massive demonstration they called with more hope than proof the day of departure. is this going to do the trick? is it going to make today the day of departure? >> the guy is like spiderman. he's not going to let go. >> reporter: this weekend all sides are exhausted. but holding their ground. hosni mubarak is still in office, but it seems not fighting to save his job but fight to go stay safe. no matter where the political negotiations go now, the protestors have scored one victory. egypt will never be the same. >> osgood: next, did the internet kill privacy?

brewerry in ireland. so 24-year-old ashley payne, a public high school english teacher in georgia, was not prepared for what happened when her principal asked to see her in august, 2009. >> he just asked me, do you have a facebook page? you know, i was still confused as to why i was being asked this. i said yes. he said do you have any pictures of yourself up there with alcohol. >> reporter: in fact the picture that concerned the principal, showing payne holding a glass of wine and a mug of beer, was on her facebook page. there was also a reference to a local trivia contest with a profanity in its title. she was told a parent of one of her students called to complain. and then, payne says, she was given a choice. resign or be suspended. >> he told me that i needed to make a decision before i left that room or he was going to have to go on and suspend me. >> reporter: she resigned.
attorney richard sawyers is fighting to get payne's job back. >> it would be like i went to a restaurant and i saw my daughter's teacher sitting there with her husband having a glass of some kind of liquid. you know, is that frowned upon by the school board? is that illegal? is that improper? of course not. it's the same situation in this case. >> reporter: but here's the really troubling part. payne had used the privacy settings on facebook. she thought that only her closest friends could see her vacation photos or her use of the b-word. >> i wouldn't use tonight's the classroom, no. but facebook is not the classroom. it's not open to the students of my classroom. they are not supposed to see it. i have privacy in place so that they don't see it. >> reporter: privacy? what ashley payne or any one of us who uses the internet has to realize is this. today our private lives are no
longer so private. >> when we talk about a right to privacy, what we're really talking about is the right to control information we consider to be private. >> reporter: frederick lane is an attorney, and the author of american privacy. considering what happened to ashley payne, does that mean that even when you think you have some amount of privacy on a page, you may not? >> you absolutely may not. all it takes is one person making a copy of what you posted, and it's out in the wild. you no longer have that control. >> reporter: and we're not losing that control. we're giving it away. every time we buy with credit cards. use cell phones which signal our location. or post pigts on social networks like facebook. just sending an email may make public private information. >> that's what is a constant
tension in our society. we trade information that our parents and our grandparents would have considered private for fun, for convenience. that kind of thing. >> reporter: we are our own worst enemy. >> i don't think there's any question about that at all. we're giving it up. we're putting it out into the world. >> reporter: the tension between technology and privacy is nothing new. in the late 19th century there was an outcry over a seemingly harmless invention, the first kodak camera. and the birth of snapshot photography. >> for the first time people were sneaking around taking photos of other people without their permission. >> reporter: it sparked this. an 1890 harvard law review article in which the future supreme court justice lewis brand ice and attorney samuel warren warned against an ongoing loss of privacy. today one of the fastest growing businesses on the
internet is something called data mining. companies collecting our private information, packaging it, using it, selling it. >> i think this is your social security number. >> reporter: yes, it is. michael, a harvard law school grad who runs a company called reputation dot-com came up with information i thought was private. i was wrong. he also revealed what he called my on-line reputation. based mainly on where i happen to live. >> our query is pretty confident you're a catholic. we're pretty confident that you donate a lot to charitable colleges. >> reporter: but that may not be recollect. >> it may not be correct. >> reporter: and then there's something that could cause a real headache down the road. >> there's an erin f.moriarty who has been convicted of serving alcohol to minors and it would be very easy for a machine to confuse you and that person and to think that you are a convicted criminal.
>> i mean the reality is that most people don't.... >> reporter: his company helps people track down and correct misinformation, but most of us will never even know it's there. >> the dossier on each of us that is easily aggregated digitally is now probably let's say call it ten pages. four years ago it was two pages. in four or five years it will be 100 pages. why? because the amount of data that's being collected about each of us every day proliferates. >> reporter: but david j.moore who runs 24/7 real media, an internet advertising firm, seems unfazed. he points out that marketing information about potential customers is really nothing new. >> magazine publishers for years have been selling the lists of subscribers they have to advertisers who want to send a mailing to them. >> reporter: and keep in mind the more specific detailed the information, the better companies can target their advertisements to customers
who really want it. >> let's ask the 500 million people that are on facebook how concerned are they about their privacy? or the 100 million that are on my-space? most of them really don't care. >> reporter: don't tell that to high school teacher ashley payne. >> yes, i put it on the internet so you can make the argument that because it's on the internet, it's public, regardless of whether or not i made it private. but it sort of feels like the same thing as if i had those pictures in a shoebox in my house and someone came in and took them and showed one of those pictures to my principal. >> reporter: what's worse, after she resigned her job at the high school, payne says she learned the original complaint came in an anonymous email, not in a phone call from an angry parent. no parent has ever claimed it. there's never been any other complaints against me at this
school from teachers, students or parents. >> reporter: officials at the county schools who declined to speak to sunday morning have so far refused to rehire payne. in court documents they say teachers were warned about unacceptable on-line activities. payne's page, they say, promoted alcohol use and contained profanity. she is now in graduate school and is suing the district. she says she wants to be sure that the internet won't just record how ashley payne lost her job but this she fought back. >> i just want to clear my name, first of all. i just want to be back in the classroom, if not that classroom, a classroom. i want to get back to doing what i went to school for. you know, my passion in life. >> mr. gorbachev, tear down this wall.

where i need to be. it's the same with taxes. turbotax has a unique gps feature that guides me step-by-step. automatically double-checks along the way and even lets me talk to a tax expert so i'm never alone. which helps me know it's done right and get to my maximum refund, guaranteed. >> try turbotax online now. you don't pay unless you're satisfied with the results. ooo whatcha got there? uh oh, sesame stir fry from lucky dynasty. oh, me too! but mine's lean cuisine, so no preservatives.

all day, all night. >> i ronald reagan to solemnly swear that i will faithfully execute the office of president of the united states. >> that i will faithfully execute the office of president of the united states. >> osgood: and now a page from our sunday morning almanac. february 6, 1911, 100 years ago today. the day ronald wilson reagan was born in illinois. as a young life guard, reagan was credited with 77 rescues. after graduating from eureka college, reagan found work
first as a baseball play-by-play announcer and then as an actor in hollywood. >> hey, you. >> osgood: his role as the dying notre dame football star george gipp in the 1940 knute rockne all american won him a lifelong nickname. >> win just one for the gypper. >> osgood: ronald reagan went on to become the president of a union, the screen actors' guild. the hoflt of tv shows such as the general electric theater, and an increasingly prominent spokesman for conservative causes. >> yet our government continues to spend $17 million a day more than the government takes in. >> reporter: he was elected governor of california in 1966. and although his 1976 challenge to president gerald ford ford's renomination fell short, he was back again four years later winning both the republican nomination and the white house itself. >> mr. president, once again.... >> osgood: in part because of his dramatic confrontation
with incumbent jimmy carter the 1980s' lone presidential debate. >> are you better off than you were four years ago? >> osgood: two months after his inauguration, president reagan narrowly survived an assassination attempt by gunman john hinkley. just a few weeks later he was back promoting an agenda of tax cuts and government deregulation. while also appointing the first woman to the supreme court. justice sandra day o'connor. >> you ain't seen nothing yet. >> reporter: overwhelmingly re-elected in 1984, president reagan devoted much of his second term to relations with the soviet union, combining the stick of a u.s. military build-up with the carrot of a warming personal relationship with soviet leader mikhail gorbachev. although gorbachev wasn't there in person to hear it, president reagan directed a personal appeal to him during perhaps his most famous speech in 1987 in a still divided
berlin. >> mr. gorbachev, tear down this wall. ( cheers and applause ) >> osgood: it didn't quite happen overnight but in november of 1989 the berlin wall did come down. that was just months after ronald reagan left office. he had said his good-byes. >> my friends, we did it. we weren't just marking time. we made a difference. >> reporter: a few years later in a 1994 letter to the nation, president reagan revealed he was suffering from alzheimers. as he faded from public view, his wife nancy carried on as the primary guardian of his legacy. he died on june 5, 2004 at the age of 93. the state funeral at washington's national cathedral was attended by leaders from around the world including mikhail gorbachev.
none of the fans at cow boy stadium will get to watch tonight's super bowl without watching past some very eye- catching art. here's barry petersen. >> reporter: they have gathered in dallas with rivalrys to settle. >> it's time for the lombardi trophy to go back home. >> reporter: it all plays out here at this $1.2 billion facility. america's most expensive football stadium or is it america's most expensive art gallery? >> you know, that was really our goal was to open this art to everyone that might be intimidated to walk into a museum. >> reporter: jeanne jones and her husband jerry own the dallas cowboys and this stadium. >> we just feel like great art for a very contemporary building like ours is needed contemporary art.
and it needed large scale art. instead of just having posters of your players, you really wanted to go this direction. >> reporter: some of the 19 pieces are football oriented, like the words of mel bachner's win or the pop-ups like players slamming into each other, of blue field explosion. >> so this the matthew richy. you see a lot of his work that has this feeling of all these lines and circles and colors. but what he did different is at the bottom he has all these xs and os. i think he obviously was trying to relate it to a football field and a football stadium. >> reporter: thousands walked past this 4,000 square foot wall or turn a corner and come across interior landscape full spectrum. around another corner.... >> can you see that? is that just beautiful.
>> reporter: star field by fernandez is aluminum with mirror glass cubes. >> they're actually mirrors so as you walk into the piece, you can see yourself. >> reporter: did she have a football dream? >> her dream was to be a dallas cow boy cheerleader. and when that didn't quite work out for her, she became a great artist. we're so proud of her. >> reporter: these are no off- the-rack pieces. franz acherman came from berlin to paint his as did british artist terry haggerty whose small brushes created huge stripes. it hangs above the concession to be enjoyed over a hot dog or texas barbecue sandwich. although the colors were not cow boy blue and silver. at another concession area look up while waiting for popcorn and see solar arrangement. there are texas bragging
rights here doing it big. there aren't that many big spaces in the world to do this. >> well, i think that's right. what so many said, you know, we may have an exhibition in a museum and it's up for three to six months. but then it goes away. so they paint on the wall and someone paints over it. >> reporter: yours will not go away. >> this is here to stay. >> reporter: once the game is played, it's just from rivalry to record books. but as for the art gallery, called cowboys stadium, stay tuned. >> so now we may go outside and see if we can add in sculptures to the outside landscape. >> reporter: you're not done? >> we're not finished, no. >> reporter: call it a billion dollar art work in progress.

i kept these. arrest me. there are plenty of good counterarguments especially when it comes to animation. the pixar folks use three dimensional space to create emotional depth in toy story 3. the last scene of despicable me was like a great 3-d gag reel, but that's not the norm. many films get retrofited with 3-d which in the green hornet adds nothing but mirth. >> underground. >> reporter: in clash of the titans turns the landscape into a puppet stage. in that one i took off my glasses. even blurry it was more involving. gene cameron himself lambasted such film and how has lent his name and more important his

underneath these dermal denticles it's like a cushion where the shark can glide through the water much easier. >> reporter: faster through water? who might be interested in that technology? in 2000 speedo introduced a line of full-body bathing suits called fast skins with stimulated denticles all over it. in 2008 olympics michael phelps wore a refined version of that suit which speedo claimed gave swimmers an advantage. the olympics committee finally banned these high-tech suits. but here at the university of florida, it's not the anti-turbulence qualities of shark skin that caught the attention of biomedical engineer tony brennan. he was more interested in the fact that nothing grows on a shark's skin. >> i'm talking about barnacles
and bacteria. >> reporter: brennan was trying to help the navy solve a huge expensive problem. >> ships moving through the ocean tend to pick up marine organisms. when they get on the side of the ship it makes it more difficult for the ship to move through the water. >> reporter: dr. brennan noticed that whales and manatees also collect gung on their skin but not sharks. when he studied shark denticles under the electron microscope he discovered why. >> wow, that shark pattern i had never seen it before. >> reporter: you think that something to do with the no bacteria growing on it. >> i think it does. >> reporter: he wondered if he could recreate the shark's skin surface on plastic sheets. >> we were trying to make the denticles and shark's denticles are set up like a diamond pattern. do you see that shape. >> reporter: that he call the material shark-let and its microscopic pattern of ridges mimics shark's skin.
when you stick it on ships sure enough nothing grows but if there is a material that even bacteria won't stick to, there's an even bigger customer waiting for it. the health care industry. >> the medical community has for so long been focused on killing as much of the bacteria as they can. >> reporter: this doctor is the director of research for sharklet. >> now the interesting thing about bacteria is that you can't kill them all. you can kill 99% of them. but that one percent that you leave alive is the strongest 1%. >> reporter: already there's one bacteria type called mrsa that is extremely resistant to almost all antibiotics. it kills more than americans than aids. >> we can't keep fighting that same traditional war. we kind of have to shift our thinking. >> reporter: in other words it might be better just to chase them away. >> yeah, kind of convince them, hey, you don't want to settle here. >> reporter: in this test, she's going to see if shark-lets can repel bacteria the way
shark skin repels algae and barnacles. >> reporter: side a is the sharklet stuff and the clear plastic. >> the same material but one is patterned with shark-let. clint ising if to take the bacteria. he's going to put some into the petrie dish. >> reporter: how long do they ink bait? >> 24 hours. >> reporter: the electron microscope reveals the an stounding results. the plain plastic is covered with a bacteria film. >> here you can see these big clumps of bacteria all piled up on one another. >> reporter: over here on the shark-let surface. >> you might see one or two cells but you don't see that big clumping the way you see it on the smooth surface. it's really interesting because there is no chemical difference between the two surfaces. it's the same material, no difference other than this physical shape alone. >> reporter: this material could be an answer to the enormous problem of secondary infections in hospitals.
what surfaces would you wrap with this stuff then to do the most good? you mentioned the bed rail. >> yeah. we would do the little bedside table, any door panels that have to be pushed or touched. those wristbands. have you ever seen anyone clean those wristbands. >> reporter: never. >> never, right? they're on patients the whole time they're in the hospital. >> reporter: we think of sharks as the ultimate predators. but if shark-let really works, we may soon owe them our lives. >> you be the quarterback. >> osgood: ahead bill geist by george. >> reporter: i hope the players can follow this. >> osgood: first. >> talking about taking the entire social experience of college and putting it online. >> it's said that the movie is social network. >> osgood: lesley stahl talks social studies with aaaron sorkin.

screen writing oscar later this month. here's lesley stahl of "60 minutes" with the envelope please. >> reporter: what a cold day we picked. we met hollywood screen writer aaron sorkin in new york where his career began. >> if we were to do the aaron sorkin story, like a movie. >> i wouldn't recommend that. >> reporter: well of course no one wants to have a movie made of them. he's risen to the top of his profession. he's written a few good men, inspired by a military court martial. >> i want the truth. you can't handle the truth. >> reporter: sports night based on keith olbermann and espn sports center. >> grab your rubbers. wooer going to take you to the iditarod because we just can't believe it or ourselves. >> reporter: the west wing inspired by the clinton white house. people want to go on the internet and check out their friends so why not build a website that offers them. and now the social working.
>> i'm talking about taking the entire social experience of college and putting it online. >> reporter: about facebook's mark zuckerberg. >> they're saying we stole the facebook. did we? ? >> reporter: it's said that the movie the social network captures our time. but it's... is that what attracted you to the subject? >> exactly the opposite. i'm not sure i even know what our time is. i wouldn't be able to capture it if i tried. what attracted me to the subject wasn't that it was timely but it was timeless. >> reporter: it's controversial the movie. it's because you use everybody's real names. >> yeah. so it's mark zucker beg. >> mr. zuckerberg, do i have your full attention? >> no. >> reporter: you portray him as a prickly guy, socially awkward, vindictive. >> you have part of my attention. you have the minimum amount. the rest of my attention is back at the offices of nationbook where my colleagues and i are doing things that no
one in this room are able to do. >> reporter: did you get him right. >> i never met with mark or spoke with him. >> reporter: you've seen him on television. >> the first time i saw him on television was being interviewed by you two years ago. >> reporter: did that influence you that interview? >> it did a lot. >> reporter: tell everyone how old you are. >> i'm 23 right now. >> you're running this huge company. >> it's not that big. >> reporter: you portray him at times in the movie as kind of a nasty guy. he betrays his friends. >> you sign the papers. you set me up. >> reporter: did you ever while you were writing say, oh, my god. the real mark zuckerberg is going to see this? it's going to be in his face. people are going to judge him by this. >> yeah. it's something that i thought about a lot. it's not something i was ever giddy about. but let me say this. i know that i wouldn't and i don't think anybody would want a movie made out of the things
that they did when they were 19 years old. >> reporter: right. >> and that's what i did. >> reporter: when sorkin was 19 he was a musical theater major at syracuse university. he graduated in 1983 and came to new york with hopes of acting on broadway. instead.... >> you have to pay the rent and the phone bill somehow. so i had a series of survival jobs. the first one was right here at the of half price. >> reporter: after selling tickets to shows, he took another survival job at a broadway t-shirt store. >> so let's see if i can do this with the eyes facing out. >> reporter: he became a genius at folding. >> that's how you fold a cats t-shirt. >> reporter: he was also a bartender at the palace theater when something opened. >> i wrote a few good men on cocktail napkins during the first act. i would come home with my pockets stuffed full of
cocktail napkins. >> reporter: to get a few good men from napkins to the stage he needed an agent. so he dashed something off for a workshop theater. >> i got a funny idea for a one act play. i wrote it. it got accepted. and nathan lane was in it. i was in it too. >> reporter: nathan lane was in this little play. >> and i was in i. >> reporter: i don't suppose there's any videotape of this? >> i sure hope not. >> reporter: it was performed at the nearby west bank cafe literally an underground theater. >> we're in the basement of the west bank cafe. >> reporter: back then in 1988, it was run by the comedian lewis black. louis black, the guy who yells. >> lewis black the guy who yells. >> he comes down. he's got this play. i'm the playwright in residence. and i read it. it's really funny. >> reporter: you put this on for him. >> yeah. >> reporter: that's where he
was discovered. and it led to a few good men. >> it led to a few good men. >> reporter: you did discover him. he gives you credit. he gives you credit. >> that's terrific. and i wish he would give me a job. i mean, it would have been so good in west wing. that would have been just a touch. would that have been too much to act. >> reporter: the social network. you would have been perfect. i look at you and i see mark zuckerberg. >> (laughing). >> reporter: sorkin got an agent which led to a few good men on broadway and then hollywood. in hollywood, sorkin became a big deal screen writer, producer, and crack head. you got hooked on crack. >> i should have died several times. >> reporter: what happened? >> i tried it once. that's all that you have to do. >> reporter: he was on crack when he wrote both sports night and the west wing. after his stint at the hazelton rehab clinic, he stayed clean for a while. but in 2001 he was caught at
an airport in california with drug paraphernalia and arrested. you were back on crack. >> because when you get clean, you start thinking, well, i'm thinking clearly now. i don't have to use the way i was using before. i can use once in a while. you can't. now i was very lucky to have gotten caught and arrested. if i hadn't, i would have gone on using and my life would have completely fallen apart. >> reporter: after another stint in rehab, he joined a men's support group. he says he's been clean for 10 years. do you still think about it? >> not nearly as much as i used to. there are triggers. you'll see something or hear something. and you have to put your head down on your desk for a minute. you know, i still go to meetings once in a while. it's not nearly as bad as it used to be. >> reporter: if you meet aaron sorkin now and want the conversation to remain light and amusing, don't bring up politics. >> i have a big problem with
people who glamorize dumbness. and demonize education and intellect. i'm giving a pretty good description of sarah palin right now. >> reporter: he seems to be having a second career these days going after sarah palin. in an essay for the huffington post, he called her a witless bully. >> sarah palin needs a therapist, okay. we need the smartest guys, the best ph.d.s around to be solving these problems. i don't have any patience with the glamorization of dumbness. >> reporter: sorkin only dabbles in political commentary. what he works really hard at is writing his plays and movies. >> all they've done is they've put the bullets in the gun. he doesn't know. >> i'm always the first actor to play the part. i'm playing it, you know, in my office. as i'm writing it. >> reporter: are you talking outloud when you write. >> all the time. it's a very physical thing. i'm talking outloud all the
time not just at my desk but in my car. >> reporter: what do you do? >> i start arguments with myself. >> reporter: out loud? >> yes. >> reporter: i asked about some issues in the social network that marked zucker that mark zuckerberg argues about. >> is it a joke? >> no, it's not. >> you're breaking up with me? >> reporter: one of the points of contention in the movie is that he started facebook because a girl rejected him or because i wanted to get girls. >> they completely left out the fact that my girlfriend i've been dating since before i started facebook. >> reporter: the girl... your current girlfriend, you were dating back then? >> yeah. i've been dating my current girlfriend since before i created facebook. >> reporter: did you know about priscilla chan when you wrote the movie? >> no. >> reporter: up didn't know that they were dating back then. >> no, her name didn't come up. >> reporter: if you had known that he had a girlfriend, would you have put that in, do you think? >> no. listen, there's a lot about mark's story like he's an
accomplished fencer. >> reporter: did you know that? >> yes. >> reporter: you chose to.... >> this isn't a biopic. it's not a profile of mark zuckerberg. it's the story about a lawsuit. priscilla was not a witness. her name does not come up in depositions. >> reporter: not everything came out of those depositions. there was a moment in my first interview that i did for "60 minutes" with mark zuckerberg in which i asked him a question. he just stairs back at me. you're just staring at me. >> is that a question? >> reporter: there's a moment in the movie and i think it's in the deposition movie. >> is that a question? >> reporter: he says the same thing. i wondered if you got that little moment from us. >> absolutely. >> reporter: these days sorkin is keeping real busy. he's writing a movie about john edwards and his love child, a tv series about a cable news show and a broadway musical, all while he waits to see if he wins the oscar for his screen play about mark
zuckerberg. we were struck by all the similarities between you and mark zuckerberg. >> yeah. >> reporter: both jewish kids who grow up.... >> in west chester. we grew up 20 minutes apart. >> reporter: he both went to california to make your fortune. you both write alone in front of a computer all day and night. >> yes. >> borger: and you know what? here's the last thing. he even lists the west wing as his favorite tv show. >> i know. and i thank him for that. >> osgood: coming up, 100 ways.

ronald reagan, who would have turned 100 years old today, was one of those rare leaders that was comfortable wearing both types of foot wear. he was smooth yet stubborn, diplomatic yet warrior like. hollywood famous for decades without ever being overtly narcissistic. because reagan was always slipping in and out of roles, shuffling between the silk and slippers and wooden shoes historians haven't known quite what to make of him. how, for example, does one square the reagan who railed against the soviet union as epitomizing anyville empire in 1983 with that of a high-minded statesman who signed a treaty to eliminate intermediate range nuclear missiles with soviet leader mikhail gorbachev in 1987? reagan pulled off incredible victories throughout his life by staying true to american ideals. and he always found humor in the human condition. in grappling with inflation in
the late 1970s, reagan scored points with the general public by lampooning lb j's great society. "i don't know whether they'll cure poverty," he said, "but they sure killed wealth." another reagan virtue was his lack of pomousness. >> what's your name. >> george gipp. >> reporter: nobody has ever accused the gypper of being a stuffed shirt. always he was the old-fashioned gentleman from illinois, optimism was his oxygen. he was a maven at finding the silver lining in every situation. >> this wall will fall. >> reporter: his mottos were two-fold: work hard and you'll succeed and trust. >> but verify. >> reporter: on his birthday centennial it's important that historians honor the high-water marks of reagan's presidency including his adept handling of the grenade a revolt, the challenger disaster and the reyjavik iceland summit. the low points of his presidency like the iran-contra
affair, also deserve close historical scrutiny. but in end, more than anything else, it's reagan's ah, shucks smile. even in the face of great adversity that our country can use a dose of right now. my bliss? lips that feel quenched, restored, revived. my blistex? complete moisture. a rush of moisture lips can feel. and it feels great. discover bliss. discover blistex. the best device for everything you love to read editors' choice. best dedicated ereader. magazines look spectacular. fantastic device. touch the future of reading at barnes and noble. nookcolor. the monster was furious! rarrr! it's for laughing...
